to nbc's first read, romney was in florida yesterday and virginia today. he'll also hit wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, and colorado before the election. the president, this is an interesting map for him, he will be in wisconsin, where he is right now, with nevada, colorado, ohio, iowa, virginia, and florida. of course, they're sending their number one surrogates, the vp nominee, out where they're not going. is this the map, centered in ohio, virginia, and florida, is it still where the action is? >> it is for governor romney for sure. it's always been the case that governor romney needs to win florida, needs to win virginia, and pretty much needs to win ohio. even then he still needs to pick up another state somewhere along the way. you can see in his map that he's spending months of his time in florida, virginia, and ohio and a little bit of time in one of those other states that he thinks he might be able to get a pickup, whether that's wisconsin, whether that's colorado. those are the states he thinks he has the best chance. he's not spending time in iowa. he'll spend two different

but there is no easy path for you here is the easiest. va., and florida those three. but do the math, that's still not 270. he still needs to pick up either new hampshire or iowa, he needs those two states if he is going to break 270. iowa is leaning towards obama right now. tomorrow night one of the first things to look at is obviously the east coast states will vote first in terms of the numbers but keep your eye on of virginia because the va is critical, if romney loses va. the handwriting may be on the wall, florida will be called or round that same time as well if romney loses florida the handwriting is on the wall and pennsylvania and ohio, all of those are in the first batch. if one picks up virginia and that when he is likely and he has a pretty decent chance in florida if he picks those to up than his race continues. no republican has ever won without ohio. you expected there may be some early calls by the big networks tomorrow? >> the network calls also depend on the exit polls for the first time ever we're doing much to our exit polls around the country we're only looking at battlegro
in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of respect for the storm victims, they said they were going to avoid any partisan attacks on president obama on this very serious day, they said they would do that, but they apparently really did not mean it, because at a rally in wisconsin today, they had the republican party chairman talking about how america needs to fire barack obama, and saying that the battle to defeat president obama is a battle for this country's freedom. at a rally with mitt romney in florida today, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take hallo
virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. and it also could be close. >> good morning. look at that, how beautiful. we are here. we are here. what are we, a day away? this is so exciting. good morning, everyone. >> he said it wasn't going to be close. and then he said it was going to be close. maybe he was talking about president clinton. >> it's monday, november 5th, the day before election day. we have with us mike barnicle, senior political analyst, mark halperin, willie's just walked in. i don't know why you're laughing. >> me? >> no, mike. >> this lighting is disturbing. i don't know who did it. i don't like it. i'm just going to say that right up front. but i'm happy this weekend -- today because this weekend there was a huge sporting event that all the world tuned to. and i can tell you i've never been more proud of the vanderbilt commodores, dudley stadium. >> no, they went on the road and did that. they went to kentucky, to commonwealth stadium. sure. 40-0, 5-4. mika, one more win and vandy's bowl eligible. look how excited mika is. >> that's amazing. >> midas. >> laugh it
and a lot more. and these lines, folks lining up for early voting in florida. some waiting for four hours to vote. so far more than 25 million americans cast ballots in 34 states and we're with louisiana residential governor bobby jindal shall the storm after the storm. jack welch on the d.c. storm. and charlie rangel on the government's stormy response to sandy and how it reverberates. and first the very latest what's going on. forget the dollars, it's sandy thing is turning dire, very dire, over 100 dead now with the count expected to go higher as rescue workers finally reach the flooded homes and no less than michael bloomberg predicting more bodies will be found. and president obama fema headquarters this morning, holding a conference call with the governors of new york, new jersey, and connecticut. and it's that '70s show in the garden state all over again. new jersey governor chris christie ordering odd-even rationing to ease the incredibly long lines. and odd numbers on the license plates, odd days and even numbers on the plates, in some 12 counties and governor mitt romney wrappin
of florida behind. they close at 7:30. the results will come fast on on battleground states indicative of how independent voters ultimately all voters will decide this race. as tight as they have been nationally, four years ago president obama became the first democratic and 44 years to win virginia. going into election day today, virginia's 13 editorial votes are considered to be in play and virginia remains a state both campaigns deemed critical to the editorial college victory. governor romney's path to victory narrowing considerably without virginia. sending the first lady for last-minute rally yesterday. the home of this year's democratic national convention and the 15 editorial votes could easily move to the republicans. remember two weeks ago the obama campaign aide claimed the president had given up on north carolina. the two met campaigns have spent $170 million on campaigning in ohio. a romney victory could mean a president so-called midwest firewall is cracking. ohio is so important to these candidates that the president spenpresidentspent parts of thee days there. governor romney
is that northbound fourth street is blocked at florida avenue northeast. florida avenue itself is open. so you can access that area but i would suggest that you just avoid it with all that activity there you are bound to hit some delays there. but northbound fourth is blocked at florida avenue and anything leading top morse street there -- up to morse street there. first of all the maps, gw parkway looks great. here's the 14th street bridge, northbound the delays here and in hand landmark northbound 95 the same story from quantico and springfield just the normal slow stuff trying to get to the beltway or beyond on to 395. back over to another live picture this time we're going to goth other side of town -- go to the other side of town. this is pretty much what it looks lick on the west side between 270 tysons corner and springfield. we'll also go to another live picture this time let's take a look at 270. on the southbound side if you're planning to head southbound off and on delays out of frederick to 109. let's go back over to the graphics, some information on penn line 407 which is now running
? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independents that the president is losing. he's actually down nine points among white men. six points among women. and four points among that critical youth vote that propelled him to the white house. all around every demographic, the president's underperforming and especially in that early voting. he has a 1-point -- 14-point deficit to what the president had before. these are all indicators that this election could go in romney's favor. >> gretchen: that's the demographics. let's talk about the issues with regard to the latest polls. who do you trust to handle the economy? juan, on these four fronts, it looks like romney is edging president obama, in some cases big margin, specifically on the economy, 52 to 43 p. are you surprised
florida went for george w. bush by 537 votes? out of millions cast. >> i am. because you can't ever get that out of your head because it was just such a surprise. i can tell you, you know, it's not whether i hear them, it's whether both these campaigns hear them. one of the things i was listening to james baker the other day who of course was the lead lawyer for the then-candidate bush in 2000 who said, look, none of us ever expected this would happen. we weren't ready for a recount when it suddenly was obvious they needed one. both sides have lawyers that have been studying sometimes automatic recounts in some states. they've been looking at all the voter laws in these swing states just for the possibility that this could happen in ohio or colorado or florida or, you know, any of the -- virginia, any of those other swing states. >> you're seeing evidence in ohio, john, of a lot of lawyers getting ready to get involved if necessary. >> reporter: and let's hope it doesn't happen. but they're watching this through the early voting process. there are observers when you go to the early voti
of florida, jeb bush, he'll be our special guest coming up at 8:00 a.m. all that plus as we mentioned the new adp employment report. mark zandi will deliver the report to us first on cnbc. let's get over to andrew with more of today's top stories. >> joe, i think actually we're going to go and talk to mary thompson. as new jersey begins to recover, gas lines are growing. mary thompson is on the new jersey turnpike this morning. mary, good to see you. but there's been a lot of lines and a lot of people talking about this. >> reporter: yeah, very frustrating situation. take a look behind me, you can see the line at the vince lombardi station. and what you can't see is that it stretches down just about a half a mile to the entrance to this rest stop. our cameraman waited in line to get gasoline, he said it took him about 25 minutes. and brian sullivan drove past it yesterday and said the line was at least 200 cars deep. similar scenes like there are being played out all over new jersey as well as long island. residents driving across state lines to find gas, others expressing increasing frustrat
. governor romney started his day off in sanford, florida. it does not end there. the president then flies off to columbus, ohio. followed by a stop in des moines, iowa, before ending the day in his hometown of chicago, where he will likely watch the election results come in. governor romney visiting battleground states including virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. we are also told that he will not be arriving in his hometown of belmont, massachusetts, until overnight tonight. what do the candidates campaign stops reveal about their strategies? and also what their internal polling tells him? joining me now is chris stirewalt. and michael brown. let me start with you. what does it tell us? >> it sounds like mitt romney is very eager to keep the path to the presidency to him open. that is to win ohio. if he can close what seems to be a persistent that small gap in ohio, his chances of winning the overall presidency are much higher. that's what he wants to do. megyn: michael, what does it say about mitt romney campaign on election day. something obama is not going to do. >> we are seeing a clo
. look at that right there. even if he wins nevada and colorado and north carolina, virginia, florida, new hampshire. he can get there. >> that's the difficulty that the romney campaign is faced with, the path of winning this electoral college is so tight, it's almost as if you have to draw inside straight tomorrow in what's going to happen in the race. and he has to, in my view, if you take a look at ohio, florida and virginia, mitt romney basically has to go 3 for 3 in those states in order to win this race. >> right. the only way he can get around that, somehow if he wins, all his path in winning, virginia, north carolina and florida. let's say he didn't get ohio and wins withes with. then he's got to run the table. nevada, and ohio. >> finally, the long ball, pennsylvania. if they can get pennsylvania, it changes the maps entirely. but having been through this before, the day before an election, the interesting thing, both sides are convinced they're going to win. both sides. >> do you still believe that? >> i still believe they're convinced they're going to win because they both
in florida, ohio, virginia. dick morris going to have thoughts on that later. but, do you take that poll seriously? >> no, i don't take those three polls seriously. here is why. in florida, they have obama ahead by 1 point. they have seven points more democrats than republicans. even in 2008 there were only 3 points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly, when you poll, you take a political affiliation of people you c
